RiL051 Fluke - Philly

Fluke were instant Balearic heroes with their first release 'Thumper' which is a slowed down chugger that worked perfectly as a last record.  Philly was their second release and it became an anthem at Basics. Everyone liked it.  Fluke were producing their records in a 'real' fully equipped studio rather than in their bedrooms and it really shows.  They understood the value of live performace and albums long before many dance acts and their 'Techo Rose of Blighty LP' still sounds huge.  If they were slightly luckier you would be seeing them on stage alongside the Chemical Brothers at Glastonbury.  Instead they disbanded. Probably just another act rinsed and dried by the music industry.  'Philly' still lives on as a unique record for me.
